July 2018: Summer Learning Month ... and More!

School might be over for the summer, but we still want our children to be engaged during their vacation so they don't fall behind in their cognitive and social skills! By providing this information/resources, we hope to prevent 'summer slide.'

news release from the Palm Beach County government and an article featured in The Sun (Belle Glade News) features...

Some tips to help your child not only retain their reading skills, but improve them 

  • Take advantage of pop-up reading activities. Whether it’s trying out a recipe, looking at a road map, or following directions on household items, reading opportunities happen throughout your day.
  • Get caught reading. Let your family see you reading. Good habits can be contagious!
  • Share a story. Take turns reading with your child and enjoy a wonderful bonding experience.
  • Learn something new. Explore a new topic with your child and find reading material on topics that interest them. The lure of learning about a subject they enjoy will motivate them to keep reading.
  • Find a book tie-in to spur reading activity. Television and movies are often based on a book or they can introduce a new topic to explore. If your TV has a closed captioning function, enable it. You and your child can read the words on the screen.
  • Pack a supply of reading materials. Have materials on hand to help occupy the time when waiting in line, at a doctor’s office, or in the grocery store.
  • Download books and magazines to your cellphone or tablet. Keep your child occupied with reading materials during your summer vacation. Many titles are available for kids to download from the library for free.
